CVMC Attends A Parade In Holly Grove, VA! Below are a couple of pictures from the Holly Grove Parade.
Please go to our Photo Page on the website for more pictures!
CVMC Attends The Mustang Club of Tidewater Spring Show – May 2nd! In attendance were Michael Cole and Michelle Meyer, Laura, Tim Posey, and Rusty Wiseman. The drive down was not bad but that noise in the tunnel was not as loud this time. Not sure what was going on there…he just did not push that gas pedal enough I guess (Ask Michael).
We got there and parked. Then a few minutes later Michael moves his car. Guess he just did not trust the tree. We cleaned the cars up and walked around some. Passed out flyers for our show. Then watched it get darker and darker especially during awards time. The girls starting packing everyone up with the impending rain (Thanks you two you’re the greatest).
Michael got 1st, and Tim got 1st. Rusty received a 2nd. We got in our cars just in time for the sky to open up and drop in the monsoon. Least that is what it looked like. It poured. I feel for anyone that had not gotten packed up. If I left anything out of importance you will have to ask the others, for that’s all I got. Live Life driving one Mustang at a time but owning however many you can afford. Good Bye all.

CVMC Attends The Parade In Bon Air! On May the 8th we met at the Bon Air Presbyterian Church for an 11:00 A.M. parade.
We had 9 Mustangs new and old for a short parade to the Bon Air Christian Church on Buford Road. It seems to me that they had fewer units in the parade than in the past and less people watching. I hope this parade doesn't go away like so many have in the last few years. Thanks for you who came out.

CVMC Invades The Stylin Stangs Show – May 8th! In attendance in our group, because others came just can’t remember them all, were Kathy McWilliams, Michael Cole and Michelle Meyer, Larry Noble, Mike Noble, Tim Posey, Rusty Wiseman, Bob Overbey, Ben and Cynthia Brown and several others just can’t remember who (comes with getting older…god help me at 50 I won’t be able to remember my name).
It was a good show. They had over 100 cars there. The Cardinal Mustang that was in Mustang Times last month was in attendance. They had some great Fries, well worth the wait. Was a lot of fun but was it ever windy. Kathy won 1st. Michael won 2nd. Tim and I won a 3rd. Larry won 2nd. Can’t remember the others sorry guys. I was a little disappointed in their class structure or maybe it was where the cars got stuck but other than that was a good show.
On the way home some of us stopped by GO Carts Plus in Williamsburg and checked them out. They are not as fast as G-Force but they had a lot of different things to do so we may want to plan a trip down there sometime. Ok I have bored you enough…wait you got this far. I am amazed and appreciative. Thanks for reading. Carry on.

CVMC At The 4th Annual Car and Motorcycle Show – Goochland Fairgrounds – May 15th! In attendance were Michael Cole and Michelle Meyer, Tim Posey, Ted and Cathy Roberson and Rusty Wiseman.
We got to the show about 9am or so. Smaller fairgrounds than I expected but that’s progress. Seems they are building a Food Lion right next door and that probably took up some land. It turned out to be a nice day, hot but nice. The area was a little dusty but, not as bad as the 40th.
We ate at a nice little Italian Restaurant that was across the street. On the way back over Cathy was glad I did not have my camera on (You will have to ask as I won’t tell).
In our class, Ted Roberson won 3rd, Michael Cole won 2nd and Tim Posey won 1st. In her class Michelle Meyer took a 2nd. Congratulations to all. That’s all I can remember so you will have to ask everyone else about it if you want to hear more. I’m done. Have a good one!

CVMC Cruise In At Bennigan’s! We had a pretty good turnout! Fourteen of CVMC finest Mustang’s were on hand for the Cruise In. It was a bright and sunny day and a bit on the toastee side too.
The food at Bennigan’s was great and I think everyone had a great time. The Cruise In broke up kind of early because of a Thunder Storm approaching.

Performance Autosports Dyno Run! As you can see Performance Autosports has a new Dyno. They have offered us a club discount if we are interested in testing our Mustangs on their Dyno. Below is the information that Kevin Adolph posted in our website forums.
As of now CVMC gets our normal club discount rates. Instead of $75/3 runs its $65 w/ air/fuel. That is if everyone comes at different times like Tim did. If we can get 10 CVMC'ers out to Dyno we can cut it down to $55/3 runs with air/fuel. That is the cheapest around by far. For 10+ it stays at $55/ 3 runs. Other choices are to rent the Dyno for a full day 9-5 for $800. In that case everyone would have to contact me and schedule their own specific time to be on the Dyno so that everyone can have their fair share. It will be up to the club to collect the money and pay at once if renting for an entire day.
1-9 CVMC members = $65/3 pulls
10+ CVMC members = $55/3pulls
CVMC member 1 hour rental = $130
9am-5pm rental = $800
Those of you who are interested please shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 804-282-0592. Remember the more people we have the better discount we get.

Call This Classic Mustang Precious Metal in the Virginia Commonwealth
Article By: Jim Smart
Photography by: Jeff Ford
As someone who grew up in the Washington, D.C. area, my eyes and ears perk up whenever I stumble upon a Mustang enthusiast from back home. Today, I make my home in sunny Southern California, about 60 miles north of Los Angeles and 3,000 miles west of where I grew up. But those sweet memories of the Mid-Atlantic region, particularly Virginia, remain. The delicious smell of fresh honeysuckle in the spring. The hum of a bumblebee. Rumbling thunder in the distance. The sound of hundreds of chirping crickets. A deep blue/purple color over the mountains before a storm. Rolling hills. Lush woodlands. The sounds associated with all kinds of songbirds. Surely I left my heart somewhere on the East Coast. I believe it was in Virginia.
My roots lie in Virginia, with relatives of all ages and generations parked between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. For me, Virginia is a refreshing slice of heaven whenever travels, and country roads, take me home to the land closely acquainted with our nation’s capitol and the Potomac River.
Jerry Goodman calls Fredericksburg, Virginia, home. Locals might call Fredericksburg precious Earth. Jerry calls this Silver Frost ’66 Mustang convertible precious metal. Silver Frost is an unusual Mustang color. We don’t see it that often today and that’s sad. Merge Silver Frost with red vinyl and you have a striking pose fit for any environment. It’s a color to stick with.
This is the Mustang everyone wants. Top down, it’s unbeatable. This is about the Virginia driving experience. It’s about rolling down the top, turning the key, and listening to the subtle roar of V-8 power. The 289ci two-barrel V-8 yields 200 hp at a moderate rev. This is a good Saturday afternoon drive. And it’s good for the soul bent on enjoying simple pleasures.
Around you at the wheel is the Mustang’s standard red vinyl interior. For 1966, Ford did away with the Falcon-style cluster with horizontal-sweep speedometer. In its place is a cluster reminiscent of the Mercury Comet’s five-style instrument panel with a full complement of gauges. Mid-dash is the decidedly rare AM-eight-track sound system. In AM mode, you can’t count on much except the ball game and talk radio. Slip in that dusty, old Bee Gees continuous loop and dance all night to the beat of bias-belted whitewall radials passing time on Virginia’s I-95 or I-64. Richmond, next exit.
Gautier’s Auto Body applied the striking Silver Frost finish. This, coupled with Jerry’s gift of workmanship, netted the MCA’s Award of Excellence plaque at the 30th Mustang Anniversary Celebration in Charlotte, North Carolina. Eight years later, Jerry takes the wheel knowing he has gone up against the best and taken home the bacon. Not bad when you consider what it takes to get there. For Jerry, it’s the result of an ongoing quest for precious metal.
News From MCA
MCA Board Meeting in Flat Rock, Michigan
Judi & I departed at noon on May 5th to drive to Flat Rock, Michigan to attend the MCA board meeting & tour both the Mustang Dearborn Assembly Plant (DAP) & the new Auto Alliance International (AAI) Assembly plant where the New 2005 Mustang will be assembled. We arrived in the afternoon of May 6th in Flat Rock & had dinner with MCA Vice President Chuck Micele; National Head Judges Wally Short & Jim Silverman.
On Friday Chuck Micele & I led a convoy from the hotel to Art Hyde’s office in Dearborn. Parking spaces were limited at DAP so approximately 40 MCA members & guests squeezed in I 6 cars. I rode with Art Hyde, Chuck & Austin Craig. There were few spaces at DAP, BUT Art was able to talk security into parking all of the vehicles.
The tour was fantastic. We saw the last 100 or so white 2004 Mustang being assembled. The reason they were all white is they ran out of other colors & white was the same color used on the trucks. Many were the 40th anniversary editions & there were many convertibles. The assembly line stopped & we were able to talk with some of the workers. Those workers were truly proud to be assembling the Mustang. We were told that the Mustang had fewer assembly line problems than any other vehicle of this type, better quality control than Toyota!
The workers were sad with some of them showing tears in there eyes. Many of supervisors & workers will be transferring to the new AAI plant to train new workers so the super quality of production continues. We saw a complete engine & transmission installed in a Mustang in 78 seconds. During WW II the DAP assembled many military vehicles & airplane parts. We saw some original wooden planks, as the plant enlarged steel planks were needed during the war. Because of the historical significance of the plant Ford does not know what will happen to the plant.
Art Hyde told us MCA is the last official, special group to tour the DAP, because it will cease operation as of 10 May. The tour was running longer than expected so we said goodbye to the DAP employees.
Most of us & some additional MCA members assembled at the AAI plant conference room for a greeting by president Phil Spender and plant safety director who explained safety concerns during the plant tour including wearing long sleeve shirts & pants because they did not want anyone to get burned by flying sparks from the welding machines.
There were no 2005 Mustangs being assembled, as some of the assembly equipment on that assembly line is not complete. This plant will be able to do all the engine/transmission assembly, painting, and stamping, in house, for Mustang. The plant has the capacity to run 3 different assembly lines at the same time. It was interesting to see how they have made the assembly line more ergonomic efficient. The vehicle chassis will tilt on its side & move up or down so the chassis will be at eye level. About 1400 new employees will be hired and workers from other assembly plants are requesting transfers to assemble Mustangs. Production starts sometime in July, dealers can start selling the 2005 Mustang in September. Ford representatives told us Ford has instructed the dealers not to add any additional premium pricing to the Mustangs. They are planning to build around 300,000 units.
As we gathered in the conference room after the tour, Ford CEO, Bill Ford, wandered in & discussed the Mustang with us. Bill told us he had driven the Red, 2005 (PPI # 0054) & invited us outside to examine the car and take pictures. Prototype Production 1 (PP1’s) Mustangs (do not have VINs & can not be sold) has ended. Close examination of the car revealed NO Mustang nameplate anywhere. In my opinion, the Mustang name should be somewhere on the vehicle. I was also very disappointed inside the plant – there were no Ford/Mustang logos or signs anywhere or outside the buildings to indicate this is where the Mustang will be produced. Everything was Mazda.
MCA board meeting the next morning was interesting. It was voted & approved to have a 45th Mustang anniversary. The mayor of Nashville, along with the hotel, called to invite MCA back, saying this was the biggest function the city has ever had (the Corvettes celebration had only 400 cars). There was a lot discussion about the 40th. Both Art Hyde & Austin Craig indicated Ford was very happy with the turnout. Ford valued the exposure of that celebration @ over 5 million dollars. The judging & parking had a lot of problems & must be fixed before the 45th. There was discussion on no judging vs. awarding everyone a plaque. Committees will be formed to study the problems & come up with solutions & what to do with leftover 40th merchandise.
The treasurer indicated MCA’s was within 2004 budget & indicated the 40th took in one half million dollars.
A draft of the MCA Hall of Fame from the committee was presented with the mission statement, eligibility, and guidelines for nomination & process were discussed; and the pamphlet is complete & ready for distribution.
Judging rule books are update to date, judging meeting 16 October 16th in St. Louis where ’93 – 2003 Cobra classes are to be discussed.
Several items were voted & approved. I think I heard the 2005 Grand National is to be held in Youngstown, Ohio. The meeting ran longer than expected. We adjourned, said our goodbyes to the new friendships and headed down the road.
The 20th Annual Mustang & Ford Show Update
Another 1000 CVMC show flyers were ordered from Ben Franklin printing, processed and were ready for pickup within 8 hours. That was super fast customer service by Ben Franklin printers. Thanks go to Bob Overbey and his printers.
The flyers were for the 40th Mustang Anniversary celebration in Nashville last month. I attached many of these flyers to cars in the parking lots of the Gaylord Opryland hotel with Virginia, W. Virginia, and Maryland license plates. Show flyers are available for all club members to use when they participate in Car Shows and Cruise Ins.
Letters are going out to many Mustang parts suppliers and business’ requesting advertising, door prizes/gift certificates, goodie bag items, & trophy sponsorship.
Both Richmond Ford and Universal Ford are our major sponsors now.
Dave’s Mustang Trivia
By David Lythgoe
1. In what year did Ford first offer a CD Player in the Mustang?
Building A 1964 to 1966 Mustang From Scratch?
For years the reproduction people have been making parts for the early Mustang’s i.e. 1964 to 1973. The number of repro parts available is governed by production figures. The cars with the highest production runs have more repro parts available than the lower production runs. Thus the 1964 to 1966 cars have the most parts available.
It is getting to the point where a person can just about build the body of a Mustang from scratch. After hours of search I have found only a couple of pieces that are not made. I may miss a couple but here it goes. The following parts are NOT available yet! A complete cowl (area in front of the windshield), a complete roof (both coupes and fastbacks), the area over the rear axle, especially convertibles, the transmission tunnel, the inner quarters (the place on either side of the back seat), front floor brace (where your feet are when you are in the front seat), and that’s about it. There are fewer pieces for the Mustangs after 1966 but the gap is closing.
I have MCA and SAAC judging experience and can help with difficult questions. Please feel free to call me during the day at 804-321-5383.
News From The CCCCVa
Now that the very extended General Assembly session is over we need to thank the members of the Assembly that helped us with SB 204. This bill has been signed by the governor and will become law on July 1st. Car hobbyists will be able to store parts and project cars as long as they are out of ordinary view. This is a BIG victory for us. We are one of the first states to finally get around the restrictions localities placed on our hobby.
Many car hobbyists worked hard to get this measure through the General Assembly. Several drove hours to get to the Assembly and either testifies before a committee or to lobby members of both the House and Senate. I am asking you to do one more task and that is to write or email those who helped us the most with SB 204. We will surely need their help in the future.
The plan is for all club presidents to write on behalf of their club thanking those that helped us. I would also request that club members and all car hobbyists write or email thanking the members of the Assembly that have helped us. I would like them to be flooded with thank you’s just like we flooded them to vote for 204. Keep in mind that they were on our side in this difficult fight that took over THREE YEARS to get this measure into law. These are the representatives that will fight for us in the future!
Be sure to thank them for their support and hard work in getting 204 into law. Tell them what this means to you personally if possible. But do thank them for representing car hobbyists.

I would recommend that everyone thank his or her local reps that voted for the bill also. We did have several people against this bill so we must make sure that we keep the friends we have made in the Assembly.
Thanks for all your help with getting 204 passed and I know you will contact those who helped us.
